Injured NMSU football player's family releases statement
Chicago, IL - Our son Miles Washington, a Los Angeles native and graduate of Culver City High School, suffered a cervical fracture on April 13, 2013, during a spring football scrimmage at New Mexico State University, where he plays cornerback on the school's football team. Miles was airlifted to University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, and underwent a 6-hour surgery on his spine. He was later moved to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, where he received a second surgery to stabilize his spine. Since his injury, Miles has been surrounded constantly by family and friends while in the hospital, and he is in positive spirits under the circumstances.
We are truly overwhelmed by the tremendous support and concern that we have received on behalf of Miles. The outpouring of prayers and kind words has helped Miles and our family get through this difficult time.
We have set up this site to provide more information regarding Miles' recovery and to collect donations for his care. We will be updating this site frequently, so please check back for news in the coming weeks and months.
-Ed and Rhonda Washington
